Bernie Sanders spoke late last night. He vowed to keep campaigning, because of course he did. Below, the video of his speech, and Bustle has the transcript.

The key part, for me, comes at 13:28. He says: "And tonight, I had a very gracious call from Secretary Clinton and congratulated her on her victories tonight." That is followed by fifteen seconds of booing and jeers. During which Sanders waves his hand, but doesn't make any meaningful effort to stop his audience from booing the Democratic nominee and the woman who just made national history.

And that is the entirety of what he says about her. That she called him, and he congratulated her on her state wins. He does not acknowledge that she made history, because he refuses to acknowledge that she's the nominee.

Lest anyone imagine that anyone but Sanders himself is responsible for this fuckery: Nope.
